Young love has always had its challenges, but even so, the world falling apart at its seams is a pretty big obstacle. This stellar collection dystopian tales explores survival of the fittest in terms of love, passion, and humanity. When the survival of the human race is at stake, what will it take for the bond between two people to hold strong together?

Featuring some of the most well known and best-selling names of the dystopian genre, as well as the hottest up-and-coming authors, this anthology includes works from Jeanne Du Prau (City of Ember), Carrie Ryan (The Forest of Hands and Teeth), Diana Peterfreund (Rampant), Jesse Karp (Those That Wake), Kiera Cass (The Selection), Andrew Smith, and William Sleator (The Boy Who Wouldn't Die).
